Abi Scott is HorseQuest Novice Master at Little Downham

Abi Scott and her 13-year-old gelding Red Rendezvous, made light work of the course at Little Downham to finish on their dressage score of 29.9 and land the HorseQuest Little Downham Novice Master for 2023.

“I’m absolutely over the moon,” said Abi who has owned for ‘Ronnie’ for four years. “For our first BE win together to be in the Novice Masters, it was simply a dream come true!

“It was our first time at Little Downham and we were very impressed by the quality of the courses. Going into the cross country phase, I was rather nervous, but Ronnie felt on top form and we worked as a team to conquer our trickiest course to date.

“Going through the finish line in tears, knowing I had won the Novice Masters, really encapsulated the ups and downs of the journey I have been on with Ronnie. The Novice Masters Series is the pinnacle of competition at Novice level and it’s fantastic to have a championship class restricted only to amateurs. To have even qualified to take part in this class was absolutely amazing, let alone being crowned the champion, finishing on a sub 30 score!”

Also finishing on a double clear were runners up Alice Gates and Shanbeg Pandora (31.2), while Katy Lawrence and Whitemoors First Flight added just 3.2 cross country time to their 32.1 dressage to finish in third on a total of 35.3.

In addition to becoming the Little Downham Novice Master, Abi also received a HorseQuest padded jacket, Nuumed numnah, HorseQuest riding socks and a £50 HorseQuest voucher. Alice’s prizes included a HorseQuest fleece gilet, riding socks and a £30 HorseQuest voucher, and Katy received HorseQuest riding socks and a £20 HorseQuest voucher.

The next Novice Masters competition in the calendar will be at Allerton Park, North Yorkshire on 16-17 September.
